Three Postcards for an Exhibition

I recently completed three postcards for an exhibition taking place in April and May 2020. Currently, I cannot name the exhibition, but will closer to the time. All I can say is that the exhibition will take place in both Cork and Dublin, and all three postcards will be for sale for a good cause.

As no theme was provided, I based all three postcards on the theme of ‘home’. I am originally from West Cork, a place renowned for its scenic beauty. Since postcards are usually popular with tourists or Irish living abroad, I thought that many people would be aware of and appreciate West Cork scenery at the exhibition.

To get inspiration for the postcards, I picked out three of my own photographs of famous West Cork sights. These sights include The Warren beach, The Beacon and a local fairy forest. For the first and second postcard, I used watercolour paint. The last postcard was done in pencil. To add another distinguishable element to the postcards, I added the name of each place in cursive writing in the bottom right hand corner.
